Jesse interviews Devi and Jyotish Novak on the film “Finding Happiness” – filmed on location at the Ananda Communities in California, Italy, and India. It follows the story of a young woman spending a week in the community. She meets several people who, in their own unscripted words, share their story of moving from Idealism to Inner Transformation. They share not only the experience of the Ananda Community; but also universal truths that allow one to transform their life. The story originates in the 1920s when Paramhansa Yogananda arrived on America’s shores. Yogananda’s mission included two key points that powerfully influenced his young disciple, J. Donald Walters, later renowned as Swami Kryananda. First – personal change starts within. Second – our environment greatly influences our search for happiness. Yogananda envisioned places where people could put high principles into action – “world brotherhood colonies”. Swami Kriyananda founded the first community near Nevada City, CA in the beautiful foothills of the Sierra Nevada. We will be looking at the lifestyle of these communities and the story “Finding Happiness”. To find out more about this work you can go to: www.findinghappinessmovie.com

Para el Hinduismo y el Budismo, la experiencia de la vida no se limita a una sola existencia. La rueda de la vida o “samsara”, conectada al concepto de karma, no tiene principio ni fin, y por lo tanto después de la muerte hay otro nacimiento y una nueva vida, una y otra vez. La Ley de Karma dice que para cada acción, existe una consecuencia, es decir, es la ley de la causa y efecto.
“Las acciones acumulativas de los seres humanos en comunidades, en naciones o en el mundo en general constituyen ‘karma de masas’, el cual precede a efectos locales o de largo alcance, dependiendo del grado y la preponderancia del bien o del mal. Los pensamientos y las acciones de todos los hombres contribuyen, por lo tanto, al bien o al mal en este mundo y de todos los que en él habitamos”. Paramahansa Yogananda

Swami Asha has been a spiritual seeker since she was a young girl. In 1969 at Stanford University, she heard Swami Kriyananda speak for the first time. Instantly, she recognized him as her spiritual teacher. “I knew the moment he walked into the room that he possessed the consciousness I had long been seeking.”She soon became a founding member of the new community Swami was starting near Nevada City, California, called Ananda Village, based on Yogananda’s dream of world brotherhood colonies for “simple living and high thinking.”Swami Kriyananda placed Asha in the role of teaching and counseling soon after her arrival at Ananda. She also served as Swami's correspondence secretary and personal assistant for many years. In 1987, Swami Asha and her husband, Swami David, became spiritual directors of Ananda Palo Alto in California, where they continue to serve today. Swami Asha is author of Swami Kriyananda as We Have Known Him, a collection of more than 200 stories by people who have been touched by his teachings and spiritual friendship, often in remarkable ways. She is also author of Loved and Protected: Stories of Miracles and Answered Prayers.With warmth and wisdom, Asha helps us see how spiritual teaching can be woven into daily, ordinary life. She offers practical, real-life examples to guide us, encouragement, and support for the journey of life. Her teachings are non-sectarian — sharing the truths that unite the great religions; her Sunday Services are based on texts from both the Bible and the Bhagavad Gita.
“Good company is essential on the spiritual path. Whether your energy will move inward toward God, or outward toward the world, is determined, to a large extent, by the company you keep.”
Buddha was enlightened! Emerson was enlightened! Sai Baba was enlightened. Enlightenment is what Yogananda, author of "Autobiography of a Yogi" came to America to teach - except it was called “Self-Realization.”
Actually you can't teach anyone to "be" enlightened or Self-Realized. It comes from within your own Consciousness. A teacher can only present you with knowledge about what it IS and why you want it. In this state of consciousness you know you really are "a spiritual being having a human experience," as Jesuit priest, mystic and geologist, Pierre Teilhard De Chardin said. You also know what Einstein meant when he said, "Reality is merely an illusion, albeit a very persistent one." You live in Oneness instead of duality, and you know that you are part of All-That-Is. Join us today, when Beverly Nadler, our Health Guru, explains why the path to becoming more enlightened is also the path for peace of mind and true health.
Welcome to Blog Talk Radio's Hope42Day. Host Lynn Kinlder interviews "Ambassadors of Hope" from all over the world. In other words, people who are up to good things in the world. Today's show is no exception. Please join Host Lynn and her wonderful guest Author and Earth Angel Ginger Blair.
Ginger Blair has been a writer all her life, and speaks about many of her spiritual experiences. She was most recently featured in The Amazing Faith of Texas, which highlighted her experience as a spiritual seeker. After undergoing a spontaneous remission during a deep meditation, she felt compelled to write her first book, Knowing: A Spiritual Memoir of Healing and Hope, to support people with cancer or other catastrophic illnesses, as well as those going through other life-changing, traumatic experiences. The book was written to inspire hope and provide tactical spiritual teaching and support for those facing uncertain futures.
Knowing also details experiences that might help those who have suffered the loss of a relationship and even those individuals who may be healthy and happy but feel the call to go more deeply within.
Ginger is an experienced public speaker who has been featured in newspapers and appeared on numerous radio and television shows. She and her husband Michael split their time between their home in Austin, Texas and their ranch, where they spend time enjoying each other, nature, and their dog, cat, horse, two miniature donkeys, and three llamas.
Tom Kelly, was born in Los Angeles, California in the United States of America, on April 6, 1950. As a child, Tom was naturally devotional, serving as an altar boy at his family church. While attending college at the University of California in Santa Barbara, Tom developed a deep yearning within his heart and soul to make a more intimate connection with God.
After earning his B.A. in Anthropology and Religious Studies from the University of California at Santa Barbara, at the age of 24, Tom entered the monastic life at the Self-Realization Fellowship (SRF). Founded by Paramahansa Yogananda in southern California, SRF- is an international, non-profit, religious organization that has roots that trace back to the ancient lineage of Swamis from India.
After taking vows of simplicity, chastity, obedience, and loyalty, Tom spent the next 25 years engaged in rigorous spiritual training as a deeply devoted raja yoga monk practicing meditation and humanitarian service on a daily basis, specializing in ministry, team building and motivational speaking.
In the fall of 1999, after joyfully living and serving for 25 years as a monk in the Self-Realization Fellowship Order, Tom felt ready to embark on a new adventure in his life. Filled with inspiration and the assurance from the Divine, Tom left the monastic life and re-entered the secular world, in order to expand his life learning, as well as share the fruits of his self-transformation and direct experience of Yoga with all.
As an ordained minister and certified yoga teacher with over 30 years of experience in spiritual and personal growth development, Reverend Tom has traveled around the world to carry the message of the Sacred Art of Raja Yoga.
Tom's passion for communicating the joy of spiritual living is highly contagious. Tom serves from an open heart with the sole intention of opening hearts and minds to seeing the truth of love within and all around us.

Long-time Ananda resident, Music Composer and Actor, David Eby joins Ilene to discuss Film Maker Ted Nicolau's investigation into how a community driven by the motivation of love for one and all--where "people are more important than things" can indeed resonate for the masses. The result of their efforts was: "Finding Happines: A Film". Ted has filmed Ananda, the California community formed nearly 50 years ago by Swami Kriyananda (who appeared on Full Power Living 3 years ago, and has since passed away). Swami was a devotee of Paramhansa Yogananda (Autobiography of a Yogi), and assumed the lead role in developing the master's dream of "world brotherhood communities, based on the principle that simple living and high thinking lead to greatest happiness and inner fulfillment." This is a wonderful investigation to do early in our year, particularly as we are now aware of the tremendous Transformation occurring in every part of life. Take a look with me at what life “could be like”, and may be like in the not-too-distant future.
Catch Your Spirit welcomes Virani Ramsden from the film Finding Happiness. Virani was born Jacquelyn (Jackie) Jacobs, in San Diego, CA. Wanting
to be the best at something- anything- at age 21 she roller skated across the United States, and was in the Guinness Book of World Records, 1980.
After a few years of college, she became a Deputy Sheriff for 22 years.
Virani was always afraid of blowing it, and found the whole deputy thing stressful, but then she read "Autobiography of a Yogi" and discovered the teachings of Paramhansa Yogananda. She learned how to meditate, and this helped her find an inner calmness which helped in her job, as well as giving her a purpose for her life. When she retired from law enforcement in 2002, she moved to Ananda Village to be in a spiritual environment that would support her highest aspirations.
She's done many things since moving to Ananda, but the most joyful has been starting Yogoata, a part of Ananda Farms, and helping our self-sustaining efforts at the village. She's been doing that for 5 years, and it has been the biggest blessing of her life.
Tune in and learn how you can find happiness in your life. Learn about living in a spiritual community. "Life is better when you're laughing"!
